EVENT BENEFITS PROGRAMS
FOR KIDS IN SEASIDE
By R.J. Marx
obody went hungry at the Sun-
day, March 6, “Sweet Affaire”
fundraiser at the Seaside Con-
The annual event offered
food and drink from the region’s premier
restaurants, wineries and breweries while
bene¿ ting programs for adults and kids.
A Sweet Affaire was jointly presented
by the Sunset Empire Parks and Recreation
Department Foundation and the Seaside Ro-
tary Foundation, an entity distinct from Sea-
side Rotary. Proceeds provide scholarships
to support access to activities for children,
youth and adults in southern Clatsop County.
“We help provide scholarships for Seaside
High School kids, clean water throughout the
world — this year our focus is Africa,” the
Rotary Foundation’s Susan Deshon said.
The Sunset Park & Recreation Founda-
tion’s Jan Barber pointed to the good work
the organization did supplementing costs for
swim lessons, adult programs and activities
at the recreation center.
Scholarship recipients are either on a ¿ [ed
income and unable to afford the programs or
are youth who would not otherwise e[peri-
ence athletic events, after-school programs
and senior activities at the Bob Chisholm
2rganizers spent months e[ploring the
region’s breweries, vintners and restaurants,
developing partnerships leading to Sunday’s
event, Deshon said.
“Everything here is donated,” Deshon
added. “The restaurants have donated all of
their food. Wines are donated. Beers are do-
nated. It’s truly a community event.”
Kendra Ward, co-owner of Seaside Brew-
ery, served guests a light, crisp, blonde ale
featuring Vienna lager malts with a touch of
wheat and honey Mount Hood hops.
Ward said she was enlisted to serve two
hours before the event. She said she “loved
meeting”: the people at the event.
Fort George Brewing came out serving
“Big Guns,” described as “a hoppy swath of
citrus zest and tropical fruit aromas.”
Buoy Beer founder and brewer Dan Ham-
ilton, a Seaside resident, poured Buoy’s
Helles, a German lager.
Wineries from across the state and the Co-
lumbia Valley in Washington were represent-
ed, including a “mystery” wine sale. Guests
paid $20 for bottles that could have fetched
“far more,” according to Seaside Rotary Club
President Kevin Leahy.
Martin Hospitality’s Wayfarer in Cannon
Beach cracked open oysters on the half shell
and to their side Maggie’s on the Prom served
artisanal cheese and charcuterie.
On the dessert side, Portland Fudge Com-
pany, Bruce’s Candies and Phillips’ Candies
sweetened the mi[ with chocolate candies
and Michael Soprano of Seaside’s Three
Little Birds served his famed “Almond Joy”
At his side Sea Star Gelato’s Tracy and
Margo Nye served their delicious iced treats,
including French vanilla and strawberry.
Flashback Soda and Malt Shop served cream
soda and birch beer.
A silent auction accompanied the tasting,
followed by a paddle auction where bidders
upped the ante in support of the cause.
